Shimabukuro Miyuri (Voice of Onda Nozomi)
-What's your impression of this work?
I started reading the original manga when I was accepted for the audition, but the delicate psychological description and the lively arts had attracted me, and I ended up being immersed in it as I continue to flip the pages.
The strength and beauty of gambling one's “youth” for a single thing. I am unable to take my eye away from the dazzling characters that didn't give up regardless of the situations and continue growing.
-What's your impression of the character and your enthusiasm?
I think that she is quite an honest girl. She continues to do her best without leaving out anything and it won't be meaningless as she enjoyed playing soccer more than anyone. Just by looking at her, it makes me feels optimistic unconsciously.
I had attended the audition with the thoughts of “I want to voice Onda!”, and I am being split apart by the happiness and anxiousness right now. I will do my best so that I can return the power that I obtained from this manga and Onda Nozomi through the voice of Onda Nozomi.
